Kika's Treats

Oh...my. I've reached chocolate nirvana with Kika's Treats.

Founder Cristina Besher nailed her baking recipes down for sure. For those who are curious, 'Kika' is her nickname, hence the brand's namesake. Besher only uses local and organic ingredients (no trans fat, no GMOs or preservatives) so the shelf life is fairly short. Not that it really matters, since you'll inhale these babies in 2 seconds flat!

I really dug the Brazilian Honey Cakes. This fancy version of "pao de mel" (honey bread) is a rich spiced honey cake enrobed in dark Guittard chocolate. Absolute heaven!

I'd be in so much trouble if I had these treats around me all the time. The Caramelized Graham Crackers are just as deadly (enrobed in dark or milk chocolate). I've never tasted such delicious graham crackers in my life, other than the ones from Recchiuti's S'mores Bites.

The flavorful Cocoa Nib Chocolate Shortbread has nice crunchy bits of nibs nestled within the light buttery goodness. The Espresso Cardamom Shortbread has a unique and delicate zing. The cardamom is not too strong, which I like.

Very, very addictive treats, so you are forewarned.
